Each semester, you are required to register for courses during the official registration period. When you register for a course, you are automatically registered for the exams, resits and the Canvas page for that course.
Make sure to register during the official registration period, because only then will you be guaranteed a place in your compulsory courses. The registration period for the Bachelor's and Master’s courses offered during semester 2 of the academic year 2019 - 2020 is:
|Semester||Course registration period opens||Course registration period closes|
|Semester 2||Thursday, 5 December 2019 (from 08.00)||Tuesday, 17 December (until 13.00)|
See below for an overview of the registration periods of all degree programmes offered at the University of Amsterdam.
Go to uva.nl/courseregistration, find your courses and click on ‘Add Course’.
Go to the Planner tab and view your course timetable under ‘Open timetable’.
Go to the Planner tab, check the boxes for the courses you wish to follow and click on 'Register' and then on ‘OK’.
Go to the 'Overview of registrations’ tab and check your registrations.
You can cancel course registrations at uva.nl/courseregistration. Go to the ‘Overview of registrations’ tab, check the box next to the course you wish to cancel and click on 'Deregister' and then on ‘OK’. You can only cancel courses up until the end of the first week [or an alternative restriction] after the start of the course.
Please note: it is important to deregister for courses you do not plan to follow. If you do not attend a course for which you registered, the result recorded for this course will be ‘NAP’ (the Dutch abbreviation for ‘non-attendance, counted as exam attempt’). Moreover, you will be preventing a fellow student from occupying your place in the course.
